Public Sector Cyber Security Challenges
Mounting cyberattacks on public sector organizations coupled with ongoing fiscal pressures have exposed critical IT security vulnerabilities which increase the risk of personal citizen data being compromised.
This personal data is not only highly sensitive, but also extremely profitable on the black market and is easily exploited by well-organized cyber criminals. Without a pervasive cyber defense strategy, the public sector risks devastating impacts on local service delivery, loss of public trust and punitive regulatory fines for failure to secure personal data of the public they serve.
